Hi i just installed the BF1942 game and also installed the new patch. But everytime i try to enter a server while its loading it says Error connecting to server...it always says that please help!!!:(
Are you sure that you installed the 1.31 patch not the 1.3 or 1.2 or 1.1
if that is no your problem try this:
This message could occur either from a Firewall blocking connectivity or by trying to connect to an incompatible server.
Make sure that the latest patch for the game is installed. Download this from http://www.battlefield1942.com. Then make sure that the server you are connecting to is running the same version of the game as you. In the lower left of the Internet games list there is an arrow. Click this to bring up the information for the currently selected server. This will tell you what version of the game the server is.
Next make sure that any firewall software is disabled and if using a hardware firewall or router that it is properly configured and is not preventing outgoing requests from your network.
You need to enable port 14567 on your router, and DMZ hosting. This should allow you to view games online.
Allow UDP Port 14567 Allow UDP Port 14690 Allow UDP 22000 (This is only for LAN games, and used by computers on the same network) Allow UDP range 23000-23009 # GameSpy Master Server UDP Heartbeat: Allow UDP Port 27900 # GameSpy Master Server List Request: Allow TCP Port 28900
Hope that helped you!!!
